This is an old family favorite my mom made when I was a child. I've changed the recipe slightly, but it still brings back those delightful childhood memories.—Kim Scott, Byron, New York


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 3 large egg yolks, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 1 graham cracker crust (9 inches), baked
  • 1 ounce semisweet chocolate, melted
  • Whipped cream and chopped salted peanuts
  • Chopped peanuts


  1. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, flour, salt and milk until smooth. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until thickened and bubbly, about 2 minutes. Reduce heat; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat.
  2. Stir 1 cup of hot mixture into egg yolks; return all to pan, stirring constantly. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat. Gently stir in vanilla. Cool slightly.
  3. Divide mixture in half. To one portion, gently stir in peanut butter; pour into prepared crust. Gently stir chocolate into the remaining portion; pour over top. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or until set. Just before serving, garnish with whipped cream and peanuts.
